Horses for Sale
| Fraser School of Driving
Driving Series - subject to change due to weather or participant's
We know it is hard to get out and get those horses
driven in the middle of winter so we are giving you an excuse to make it
Every 6 weeks we are going to have some sort of clinic weekend at
the Fraser School of Driving, in Deer Lodge, Montana.
The cost for two
days of learning and Saturday night dinner is $150 plus $10 per stall. We
are going to fill your days with hands on driving and many discussions. We
are going to make these weekends so that everyone can learn from watching
and listening to the issues that others are having.
As it is winter,
sometimes the roads may not be the greatest for pulling trailers. Anytime
this is a problem please come anyway there will always be horses and from my
experience you will become a better driver the more horses you get a chance
We are always open to suggestions on clinic ideas and we can
always add things to the weekends that are brought up. As you all know
things are pretty laid back and we are there just there to help and keep you
Below are the dates.
Harness/Carriage adjustment your horse will move better and be more
comfortable an able to do their job better and safer. We will show a couple
different types of hook ups, Remember your horses change so sometimes you
need to make adjustments that were just fine 6 weeks ago. Any issues you are
having we can figure out a plan, Ground Work is so important and something
you can do quickly and all winter long.
Driving in an Arena How to use the whole arena and to keep your horses from
falling around the corners. How to deal with others in the arena general
arena etiquette. Obstacle driving cones, barrels, corners.
February 20-21 Single, Pair, Tandem, 4 in hand. Let us do something
different. If you always drive a single let us put you behind a pair. If you
always drive a pair time for you to drive a single. We can provide the
horses or if we feel your horse is ready to go with a mate or taken single
we will do that. (Alex is working on a 4 in hand that hopefully you all can
drive) Driving different horses will make you a better driver.
